How to add an NFS source to the Boxee Box
Can I browse to NFS sources or add them as a File Source on the Boxee Box?
Boxee Box has support for the NFS network protocol, for more information about NFS please go here.
How to Use:
You have two options, first via the Boxee file browser:
Navigate to Files → Browse → Network
choose “Network File System (NFS)”then browse to your source (computer, NAS device etc...)
Play the file you want
Second option is to add a file source via NFS :
Navigate to settings → File Sources Add Sources → “Network File System (NFS)”
Locate the computer you want to share from.
Add the directory and set the scan parameters.
Please note that only devices with Native NFS support will be supported on Boxee.
NFS will start to scan for network sources only when you first enter it (browse/ file sources), if you added NFS source then it will automatically scan and start resolving for sources as soon as you start using Boxee.
For more information about adding File Sources please check the file sources article.
Boxee support only up to NFS 3, NFS v4 is not supported.
There is no support on the Boxee for NFS security, you can not add UID or GUID to the Boxee.
